Towerstream Adds Record Number of Buildings and Customers to Its On-Net Fixed Wireless Offering in Third Quarter of 2015

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Towerstream Corporation (NASDAQ:TWER), a Fixed Wireless Fiber Alternative provider, announced that 55 building installations were completed and 44 customers were added to its On-Net fixed wireless offering during the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. As a result, there were a cumulative total of 155 building installations completed and 142 customer connections as of September 30, 2015.

“There is increasingly strong demand from building owners and property managers for our On-Net broadband solution. Not only have they caught on to the superior value and service we are able to offer for their broadband needs, they also see the tremendous benefits of marketing the service to their existing and future tenants. As we head into Q4 and beyond, we see great opportunity ahead,” stated Jeff Thompson, CEO.

An On-Net installation enables Towerstream to provide wireless broadband service to all businesses in a building as compared to the traditional approach of connecting one customer at a time. Building owners provide Towerstream access to its central data services room where the company installs Point-to-Point equipment capable of servicing the entire building rather than equipment only sufficient for one customer. As additional customers are secured in a building, the only action required is a cable run from the central data services room to the business' information technology portal.

Business tenants have access to 100 megabits per second of dedicated, non-oversubscribed, symmetrical Internet connectivity, backed by a leading SLA (service level agreement), at the industry’s lowest price of $699 per month.

“The secret to Towerstream scaling our On-Net solution lies within the power of our fixed wireless network. Many years ago we had a vision to leverage wireless infrastructure technology to build a network high above each city unlike many traditional Telecom companies who use fiber. Today our network allows us to offer less expensive, faster Internet service with an industry leading SLA. Building managers and companies alike are realizing these unique benefits and proactively signing up for service,” stated Arthur Giftakis, SVP of Engineering & Operations.
